WHAT ARE CELEBRITY GAGGING ORDERS?
Rarely a week goes by without reports of another celebrity gagging order. In legal terms these orders are known as injunctions. And they are not just available to celebrities. They can be taken out by any business or individual that wishes to prevent publication of information about them.
At Big Data Law we have obtained these orders under anonymity for celebrity clients. Clients wish to keep their affairs private without press intrusion ; given our discreet and confidential services we have managed to obtain such orders without attracting attention for clients. This is an advantage that we have over larger market players and one which our clients recognize well.
At Big Data Law we handle celebrity gagging orders and other related matters, including:
- Confidentiality and privacy issues
- Misuse of private information
- Social media abuse
APPLYING FOR AN INJUNCTION
Celebrity gagging orders and other types of injunction are only granted at the discretion of the judge. For this reason it is difficult to be certain that your application for an injunction will be successful. And the cost of obtaining an order could be in the thousands of pounds. So expert legal advice is essential.
You should also be aware that there are limitations to injunctions, As the recent case of Sir Phillip Green showed, even a court approved celebrity gagging order is no guarantee that sensitive information will not end up in the public domain.
At Big Data Law our advice is always practical and focused on the best way to achieve what you want. We will always alert you to the risks involved in any course of action so that you can make a fully informed decision on your case.
